Super-fast Wireless AC Performance
The DAP-2695 delivers reliable, high-speed wireless performance using the latest 802.11ac standards with maximum wireless signal rates of up to 450 Mbps over the 2.4 GHz band, and 1300 Mbps over the 5 GHz band This, coupled with support for the Wi-Fi Multimedia™ (WMM) Quality of Service (QoS) feature, makes it an ideal access point for audio, video, and voice applications. When enabled, QoS allows the DAP-2695 to automatically prioritize network traffic according to the level of interactive streaming, such as Voice over IP (VoIP). The QoS feature can be adjusted through the DAP-2695’s web GUI using a drop-down menu option to select customized priority rules. Additionally, the DAP-2695 supports load balancing to ensure maximum performance by limiting the maximum number of users per access point.

The DAP-2695 also supports advanced radio management features such as band steering and airtime fairness. Band steering detects and steers 5 GHz capable clients away from the overcrowded 2.4 GHz network to the less congested 5 GHz network. Airtime fairness allocates time equally among clients, so each client can transmit at its highest speed regardless of location or 802.11 standard version.

Versatile Access Point Functionality
The DAP-2695 allows network administrators to deploy a highly manageable and extremely robust simultaneous dual-band wireless network. All six antennas on the DAP-2695 are detachable and can provide optimal wireless coverage over either the 2.4 GHz (802.11g, and 802.11n) or the 5 GHz (802.11a, 802.11n, and 802.11ac) band. Enclosed in a plenum-rated metal chassis, the DAP-2695 adheres to strict fire codes for placement in air passageways. For advanced installations, the DAP-2695 has integrated 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE+) support, allowing this device to be installed in areas where power outlets are not readily available.

To help maintain a secure wireless network, the DAP-2695 supports both Personal and Enterprise versions of WPA and WPA2 (802.11i), with support for RADIUS server backend and a built-in internal RADIUS server allowing users to create their accounts within the device itself. This access point also includes MAC address filtering, wireless LAN segmentation, ability to disable SSID broadcast, rogue AP detection, and wireless broadcast scheduling to further protect your wireless network. The DAP-2695 includes support for up to eight VLANs per band for implementing multiple SSIDs to further help segment users on the network. It also includes a wireless client isolation mechanism, which limits direct client-to-client communication. Additionally, the DAP-2695 supports Network Access Protection (NAP), a feature of Windows Server® 2008, allowing network administrators to define multiple levels of network access based on individual client’s need.

Multiple Operation Modes
To maximize total return on investment, the DAP-2695 can be configured to optimize network performance based on any one of its multiple operation modes: Access Point, Wireless Distribution System (WDS) with Access Point, WDS/Bridge (No AP Broadcasting), and Wireless Client. With WDS support, network administrators can set up multiple DAP-2695 access points throughout a facility and configure them to bridge with one another while also providing network access to individual clients. The DAP-2695 also supports advanced features such as load balancing and redundancy, for failsafe
wireless connectivity.

Network Management

Network administrators have multiple options for managing the DAP-2695, including web (HTTP), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL, which provides for a secure connection to the Internet), Secure Shell (SSH), which provides for a secure channel between local and remote computers), and Telnet. For advanced network management, administrators can use the D-Link AP Manager II, or D-View SNMP management module to configure and manage multiple access points from a single location. In addition, the AP Manager II and D-View software provide network administrators with the means of conducting regular maintenance checks remotely, eliminating the need for sending out personnel to physically verify proper operation.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
D-Link offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the DAP-2695 Access Point to further its commitment to product quality and long-term customer confidence.
